    The Galaxy S III's barely old enough to warrant an After The Buzz episode, but we're already talking about the Galaxy S IV. In any other venue, that would be a sign of jumping the shark; on the Pocketnow Weekly, it's just business as usual. Tune in for our best speculation on what Samsung might include in its next sensational superphone, from unbreakable screens to bone conduction. Then keep on listening for an extended debate about the merits of Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 versus iOS, drilling down into their UIs and design philosophy. Finally, after some extended talk about how useful ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note II continues to redefine the smartphone space. The phone/tablet hybrid achieved a 9 out of 10 in our comprehensive review, demonstrated excellent staying power in its recent After The Buzz appearance, and continues to sell well as we head into the holiday season. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Samsung, we have the opportunity to give one away. So that's just what we're going to do. If you've been dreaming of sticking an S Pen-enabled phablet in a loved one's stocking this holiday, but you'd like to avoid spending $600 in the process, this post contains everything ...

    Last week, we told tales of wireless audio at wineries, sang the praises of our friends at Sonos, and promised a HiFi system to folks willing to listen to the latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Over the past week, we've enjoyed watching the responses come in, and we've been especially heartened to see only a few attempts at "beating the system." Thanks for reinforcing our belief that there really are very few "tools" out there. The logistics are now complete, the numbers have been drawn, and the revels are just beginning for our lucky winner. Please join us in ...

    This past Black Friday, I wasn't scrambling for deals at a local Best Buy or Wal Mart; I was recovering from too much turkey and taters. I was enjoying my convalescence from overindulgence at a local winery, whose tasting room featured a sound system of impressive bass and volume. That stereo equipment, I was later to learn, was a Sonos wireless HiFi system: a stereo apparatus that allows one to stream music from internet sources like Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, and a whole host of others to a big 'ole speaker, and control it via an iOS, Android, PC, or Mac device. It's a little slice of the ...

    Hey, so ... we don't want this AT&T-branded Galaxy S III. Do you? Just kidding. About the not-wanting-it part; of course we do. We're not kidding about the giveaway, though! A Pebble Blue, 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III (just like the one we reviewed last week) could be yours by this time next week. "But how?" you wonder, drooling involuntarily. First off, this giveaway is possible thanks to the amazing people at Samsung, who we appreciate a great deal. They are how. They've provided us with this brand-spanking-new device, and we're passing it on to one lucky, devoted Galaxy S III fan. ...
